NOV 08 2020 #1 - Finally & Thanks

FINALLY and THANKS!!!

It’s been a long four years, but the fruits of our labor have finally given us a change in the White House with President-elect Joe Biden and Vice President-elect Kamala Harris.  Woo Hoo!  We will also have a second Democrat in the US Senate representing AZ with Mark Kelly’s decisive win.  Votes continue to be counted in our county as of this writing, so we will announce more of the outcomes in our next newsletter and during the November LD meeting.

Thanks to our LD20 Candidates and LD20 Campaign team for everything you did for our district.  All of the hours spent talking to all of the voters in LD20 regardless of political affiliation because you were listening to everyone.  You sacrificed much to move the needle.  Special shout-out to: Judy Schwiebert, Doug Ervin, Nate Levinsky, Mary Fortney, and the rest of the team.

Important local elections for our LD

What?  More elections?  Yes, we have some very important local elections taking place on November 17th in LD20 for the LD20 Executive Board and 23 State Committee Reps.  We have 71 elected PCs in LD20 who can run for these positions as well as vote.  All LD20 elected PCs will receive information from our secretary regarding the expectations for each of the positions.  As always, please contact anyone on the Executive Board, if you have questions.  Get involved!
